Botox For Three

Camille called.

“Do I have a deal for you,” she said on my voicemail.

I couldn’t imagine what it could be unless it involved all the shrimp you could eat, and boy, was that not it.

It started with a Groupon.  For those of you who may not know, it’s a coupon involving others.  My friend Robin, for instance, had one for a day spa she took her daughter to.  Camille’s however, was about fillers.

Dr. Syringe, let’s call him, has this pre-Holiday deal going where, if you bring a couple of pals you all get a shot for the price of one you split three ways – so instead of 500.00 dollars it’s a little over 170.00 per face.

Doc makes his money and your laugh lines stop laughing, at least temporarily.

“But Camille, you know I’m really not a fan of fillers, especially Botox.  That botulism business shot in your head doesn’t sit well.”

“Oh for crissakes, your head Susannah is already so fucked up according to Dr Shoe…

“That would be Shin…her name is Dr. Shin.”

“Whatever…what do you have to lose except maybe ten years?”

“My mind, the little that’s left of it?”  Now I knew this was all about money.  She had already corralled Tabby, short for Tabatha, another model of an uncertain, certain age we know, so she was short one pon, if you will.

I needed an out.

“You asked Tabatha Sweeney before you asked me?  I’m stunned Camille, and more than a little hurt.  Last I knew you two were on the outs calling her a tarantula in tights.”

“Well, I ran into her unexpectedly, so I seized the opportunity.  Are you crying?”

“I just don’t know what to say except, if your forehead swells like the last time, call Tabby so she can pop that cork while putting cold compresses on your head, WHAT’S LEFT OF IT.”

Whew…..close call…do you know how many shrimp you could get for 170 bucks?

We’re talking gills baby, gills .       images



About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    You look perfectly fine the way you are, Susannah. Don’t go for the frozen look!


    • Thanks Skinny, I could use a little overhaul, but shots scare the hell out of me. If you were to walk down Madison in the shank of the afternoon, you’d see why. Women who look like earthenware you could bounce a tennis ball off of. OOH…did you get a chill Skinny?


  2. So funny. I’d go for the shrimp!


  3. People start looking funny after those shots. I like having you just being funny, not looking funny. Avoid the shots, and stay the way you are, and think how much more you’ll save!

    I have no interest in Botox, but if I had the money I would consider Thermage. I don’t mind the lines as much as the sags.

    I say for $170 you could probably get a nice lunch at the Carlyle! It’s a much better way to spend the day…

    I like wrinkles.


  7. Just the thought of walking around in a permanent state of surprise is enough to have me screaming “can I girl get some cocktail sauce over here?”
